A Feldspar mineral, Labradorite is named for Labrador, where it was first discovered (imagine that). Labradorite displays an iridescent effect known as labradorescence (once again, imagine that . . . ). When held at various angles under illumination, refracted colors range from blues and violets to greens, golds, yellows, and more. A polished surface serves to accentuate the effect. Yet at a glance, Labradorite can appear to be a nondescript gray rock. This particular specimen is a spherical shape with a flat, polished surface, again allowing the iridescence to be magnified. A great piece that will fascinate you as view it from multiple angles.
